The first episode “The Blood Warfare” received a rating of 9.5/10. In MAL, Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War achieved a #2 ranking with a rating of 9.11, initially, it received a ranking of 9.25!

Which is the best Anime series this Fall of 2022?

It’s quite difficult to judge a series. Simply based on ranking, Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War is promising and can become the number 1 series this season.

Chainsaw Man is not quite far behind and the real action will start in Episode 2.

Even in Bleach Episode 2, we might get a good glimpse of Yhwach and his slaughter fest of Soul Society.

Ichigo vs Denji?

What made Denji in Chainsaw Man quite appealing was his simple wishes and his willingness to live.

Dying without achieving what he wanted, did seem to be quite unfair.

Both Ichigo and Denji have one thing in common, they just have very simple and realistic views of life.

It was nice to see Denji dream of bread and jam while trying to provide for his little companion, Denji.

We did miss Kon in Bleach Episode 1, and hope he makes a flashy appearance and gets on Ichigo’s nerves.

In terms of screen presence and appearance, Ichigo stole the show.

Kurosaki Ichigo’s Bankai and how he dealt with the hollows and Ebern was beautiful. Chainsaw Man and Bleach: Sennen Kessen-hen both have a lot of gore and blood, so there’s another common ground.

The way Denji transformed with Pochita to kill the devils gives a full score to character transformation!

There is no such rule that fans can enjoy one series or have to choose one over another.

The excitement for Bleach is something different. Fans have been waiting for a long time for Bleach's final arc to get animated.

The expectations for Chainsaw Man were phenomenal as the series is quite different from others.

The darker elements, gore, blood and the devils make up the plot with a cool Denji and Pochita make an undefeatable duo.  

Technically Ichigo Kurosaki is a one-man show, but he has friends which make up the inner circle. Both series do have comedy and a lot of dark humor!

Do enjoy both Chainsaw Man and Bleach Thousand Year Blood War now airing! Do support the series and enjoy them!
